Thanks to Bob Schmon for submitting this route, popular with the A STS set. It covers a lot of ground and goes up and down. 

If you are running late for your train back at Peekskill, you can take a right at mile 79.4 onto Washington St, where W Mt Airy becomes Furnace Dock, and follow Washington to a left on Hudson Ave in Peekskill. You will see a sign there directing you to the train station. 

Ron Roth submitted 2 variations of this route: 

Reservoirs and Rollers with Peekskill Start, harder ending (optional - easily avoided by taking a right on 129 from the Dam and going directly to Mt. Airy or Colabaugh Pond:

The Peekskill version with an easier finish:

Should you have time, have food and ale at either the Peekskill Brewery or the Taco Dive Bar before your train home. And raise a toast to Terry.
